Nugent Exercises His First Amendment Right… Army Soldiers Get Punished

By: Andrea Ryan

So much for Freedom of Speech.

Ted Nugent has been removed from his scheduled concert performance to entertain our Army soldiers in Fort Knox.  Even though the Secret Service determined that recent remarks the musician made regarding the president did not violate any laws, our Obama-led government still decided to mete out its own Obama-style punishment.  Never mind the ones being punished are our soldiers.

According to CNN,

It’s lights out on Ted Nugent’s scheduled performance at an Army base in Kentucky.

Commanders at Fort Knox have decided against allowing the “Motor City Madman” to take the stage at the base in June, the latest fallout over Nugent’s comments that he would be “dead or in jail” if President Barack Obama were re-elected.

“After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation,” according to an announcement posted Saturday on the base’s Facebook page.

The concert at the base is part of the “Midwest Rock n’ Roll Express” tour featuring co-headliners Nugent, REO Speedwagon and Styx.

Better to punish the soldiers than have Obama’s ego bruised.  It’s an Obama world.

    Of course if he had posted a bounty on Obama or incited others to burn down his house….oh, yeah, I forgot, only anarchists and Socialists can do that without any consequences.

    If I know Nugent, he will sponsor another concert, free to any serviceman… write a song Ted!

    Fort Knox is now the Army’s “personnel” command.

    That’s as politically correct as it gets. These are future HR clerks.

    How confusing. CNN has decided that saying the word “n**ger” on national television is now acceptable. However, ABC still finds it offensive.

    Republican VP candidate in 08 received death threats.

    The release of 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin’s emails shows that she received a barrage of abusive emails including death threats in the run up to the 2008 presidential race.

    Sarah Palin emails: Enemies sent a series of death threats

    Obama had her emails taken and government read every word.

    Yes, it is an Obama world. I don’t believe we will see Nugent in jail or dead.

    OBAMA IS A LOSER, COME NOVEMBER WE WILL ALL BE BACK ON TRACK ONCE AGAIN. I can guarantee we won’t see another radical like him in the White House because the voters will speak. That is our best revenge.

    Trayvon Martin shooting was not an act of racism, but a community trying to defend itself

    The sensationalism by the media against George Zimmerman for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, clouds the real reason a shooting occurred in the first place.

    The pundits, the community organizers, the pot stirrers, are all trying to find a scapegoat and the convenient one to blame is George Zimmerman. But Zimmerman is but the symptom of a government failing in its prime function: To provide protection and security for its citizens. If government does not provide protection for its citizens, then the citizens will provide it for themselves…and what the citizens provide will not be as professional and polished as a trained police force.

    The gated community that George Zimmerman is a resident, has been the repeated target of crime. Zimmerman himself had made repeated phone calls to the local police to report suspicious behavior/crime as had been requested by that department. Other members of the community had made calls as well. As far as the cops were concerned, that wasn’t excessive in a neighborhood fighting petty crime. {…}

    Some communities are getting rid of their local departments of police and fire altogether, finding them too expensive to maintain, they are sub contracting with regional sheriff and fire departments to serve their needs. Many communities are now using private fire fighting services and considering using private security companies to proivide basic protections.

    All of this doesn’t bode well to the citizen that think instant help will be there with a 911 call. In many cases when danger is seconds away, the police are just minutes away and the difference between you living to be able to defend yourself in court, or dying and being carried away in a casket….is your right to bear fire arms.

    There will be calls for tighter gun controls because of the Trayvon Martin shooting, but

    more restrictions only give the criminals a bigger advantage. Look at the cities with the tightest gun controls, it doesn’t put a dent in the criminals owning guns. As a result citizens feel the need to enhance their security with more neighborhood watches and by purchasing fire arms for their personal protection.

    This whole dog and pony show is to appease the racist like Panthers, Sharpton and Jackson. The Nugent thing is too. Cory is trying to give the town time to settle down. Thank God Zimmerman is released because there is no evidence against him.

    The guilt lies with the person in the Police Department who let something out to the public that this was a case of Manslaughter now that detective says there is no evidence of this.

    I do believe this is a wrongful arrest. Time will tell.

    Taqiy. I should add, this was my senior year in high school. Our teacher did not use the text book assigned to our class, but chose, instead, to do a series of lectures. He was one of the best teachers I was privileged to have. As a matter of fact, I cannot recall one teacher I had throughout my primary and secondary education who wasn’t.

    I don’t imagine Ted Nugent will be too happy about this either.

    “With the help of Representatives like Barbara Boxer of California, a bill rapidly working through Capitol Hill (passed through the Senate and is currently up for review in the House) will give the IRS power to:
    Accuse Americans of delinquency of tax payment without due process
    Revoke their passports and travel rights
    Place the accused in a centralize database
    Authorize the removal of their right to own a firearm

    No formal charges are required. Simply the accusation from the IRS is sufficed to strip American citizens of their Constitutional rights.

    “There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports the Daily Economist.”

    I wish I’d had the teachers you did.

    By the grace of God, I have a father who taught me to learn.

    Any decent soldier would refuse to attend. Let the concert go on … to an empty house.
